It's just 5 days until TCR06 opens its doors on Saturday 25th March. Aside from the 130 exhibitors displaying the finest triathlon, cycling and running kit available, there are plenty of seminars, workshops and activities to get involved in. Weekend tickets are available on the door, £10 adults and £5 kids.

Here's a taster of what's happening...

Trek WSD, Fit for Women:
Trek, in association with Sigma, are giving women the opportunity to try the latest Women's Specific Bike Designs on a 1km cycle test track. Sigma will have a Bikefit service at the show and a range of women's specific cycling and tri gear. You can either book in advance at www.trekwsd.co.uk, or on the day on stand A12.

Running Workshop and Advice Clinic:
Suffering from a niggling running injury or just feel you need some advice on avoiding lower limb problems? Then the experts from RS Scan Lab will be on hand to help. Two Podiatrists and a Biomechanist will be available to answer questions and explode some of the myths surrounding running injuries.

If you feel you could benefit from a full assessment, these are charged at a special show rate of £70 - saving up to £55 of the usual price, this includes a pair of prescription or performance orthotic insoles if required.

Viner Bike Fitting Workshop:
Mystified by the black art of bike fitting? Visit the Viner Bike Fitting Workshop to be illuminated! Two major presentations a day at 11:45 and 2:30 will cover how to get the best out of your position on the bike. At other times you can fire questions at the Viner team as they carry out full bike fitting of visitors to the show.

Bike Maintenance and Preparation Workshop:
